From Malta, Illinois, USA:
At night, my blood sugar will go low and then I will be high in the morning. I have trouble getting it down. I'm on a MiniMed 515 pump. What should I do?
You need to adjust your insulin dosing. Your pump delivers a basal rate which may need to be adjusted. Your pump also is a "smart" pump which delivers insulin based on the carbohydrates you eat and your blood sugars. Your diabetes educator or diabetes physician should have provided you with a way to review your blood sugars with them in the event your blood sugars are not in an acceptable range. I would contact your diabetes educator or physician and let them know the troubles you're having. They will help you to make adjustments to your insulin dosing.
